Today with a wet backyard, I decided a better use of energy would be to make a cake rather than let the kids get caked in mud (and do MORE washing tomorrow!).
4 eggs, separated
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup flour
1 cup white sugar
Preheat oven to 175 degrees celcius
Grease a small springform, round, loaf or heartshaped tin
Beat eggwhites until firm, add baking powder and vanilla.
(you can't see much, even my little ones are mesmerised by the kitchenaid!)
Put the mixer on low speed and slowly tip the egg yolks in.
Sift your sugar, then add a tablespoon at a time until all combined
Lastly sift your flour, and do the same as sugar, remove bowl from mixture and give a final gentle mix to ensure all is combined.
Divide mixture into as many bowls as you would like colours
Add about 1/2 tsp of liquid colouring into each mixture (personal taste of course!)
Pour into baking tin one by one by dropping into the centre, one after the other, they will spread.
Bake for about 20-25 mins, Cool and slice (ice if you wish)
